London Calling II
Following the successful and interesting London trip in the summer term another group of 12 students came over to London on an excursion. This time the theme was 'Keep it Real', how designing and making goes hand in hand. We visited designers studios which are heavily involved in printing or producing their own artwork themselves and develop ideas on the basis of the production process.
Again we visited the St. Bride Library (an absolute must for everyone with an interest in typography) and studios of good friends such as Hato Press, Modern Activity, Julia, Hudson Powell and Fraser Muggeridge. Personal highlight was the visit at Why Not Associates where Andy Altman explained their Blackpool mega project The Comedy Carpet in all detail.
